The Prophet proceeds to describe fur- ther, saying. "He will swallow up death victory." for several thou- sand.years has had the victory, and the human family have been swal- lowed up by it. The Scriptures desig- nate the six thousand years of earth's history as the reign of'Sin and Death. It conservatively estimated that Death has swallowed up twenty thou- sand millions of humanity, nnd that ninety thousand are going to the tomb every day. .The Lord tells us through the Proph- et that with the establishment of His Kingdom will come a wonderful change; instead of Death continuing to swallow up the race, shall cease. None shall die then except for wilful sin. How a time that will be! All of our sorrows are more or less intimately associated with the reign of Sin and Death.

Parts I. and II. were run today; parts III. and IV. next, and so ou. The elite of the city were well rep- resented. Eeserved seats (which, by the way, are free to all these exhibi- tions, and no collections) were soon ex- hausted. It is unquestionably true that Pas- tor Russell has brought to the Coast the tirsest collection of motion-pictures and slides ever shown here, and a long run Tvill follow. About 15.000 people now attend the PHOTO-DRAMA OF CKE- ATION daily. The Gospel Is being preached in a most enticing manner; j a long-felt want is being supplied.

His text was: I "And in this Mountain shall the Lord of Hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things." (Isaiah He said: i Throughout the prophetic Scriptures the word Mountain is used as the syru- i bol of a kingdom_ Earthly governments I are represented as mountains j while the Lord's Government is repre- sented as being established "in tbe top for those who have even the Most Hist, their Refuge anfl Habitation (Psalm But then, even that plowshare of trouble the Lord proposes shall be overruled so that it will constitute a channel of blessing to mankind, by preparing their hearts for the Message of Divine Love and Grace, centered in Christ and His redeeming work at Calvary. What Say the Scripture? Turning from the super- stition, darkness nnd 'terrors of the Dark Asres. let us look still further ired Word of God through and Prophets. From these let us hear some description of the blessings which God purposes His Kingdom shall bring to our sin-cursed race. The Scriptures tell us that God has prepared a great feast for hu- manity; they intimate figuratively that mankind has been starving- for the Message of Divine billions of our race have gone down in igno- rance and superstition, famished for lack of the Word of God. Message of Truth and Grace which our dear Redeemer brought aud indeed been supplied lavishly to some. Some of us have feasted upon the good things of our Father's Word and Plan. But the great mass of mankind have been so deaf and so blind that they see not, neither do they understand nor re- ceive the grace of God. under present we a re that "all the blind eyes shall be opened, nnd all the deaf ears shall be unstopped" of the It is this Moun- j and tbat, the whole world tain, or Kingdom of God, which is re- i ferred to in our text. It has not yet been established in the earth, and hence work has not. yet ,been realized. We still properly pray, i "Thy Kingdom come: Thy will be done j on earth, as it is done in Heaven." Trne. a beginning has been made. j For more than eighteen centuries since our Lord's ascension and the bestow- I mont the Holy Spirit at Pentecost tho has been in process of se- i lection, and the Church is sometimes styled the Kingdom, because its metn- hers when glorified will constitute the I Kingdom will share with the Heavenly the Kingdom honors nnd services for the world. i It is true, also, that our Lord is ex- alted a Princo and a Savior: and that shortly, at His Second Advent. He Is to take to Himself His groat power and reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. But. He has not yet done this. He declared at His "All power in Heaven and in earth is given unto Me." Yet He also in His last Message to the Church distlnctly pointed out that the time for taking posHe.ssiun of His Kingdom was fu- ture; nnd that the time will surely cotne when He will take unto Himseif His great power and reign, because the time to n'ign will then have Revelation More than this, the signs of the times.'read in the light of the Lamp of Truth, the Word of Gml. seem clearly to indicate that the time is near at hand for. the sotting of Christ's Kingdom. How glad wn all should be! What rejoicing it should CM use the whole world of mankind, to know that the reign of Sin and Death is nearing its conclusion: that Satan, tbe Prince of this will shortly be bound for a thousand years, that ho deceive the nations no more until its termina- tion'. we should thnt "the night: is far spent and the day is at that the Millennial Morning Is j already dawning: that the SUE of Uighteonsiu'ss is .-ilreydy rising, nnil that soon the whole earth will "lw full of the knowledge the glory of j God. as the eovi-r the great A F-sast In This Mountain.

Blessed the Hungry. There ;ire many hungry hearts in the world. Many whose bodies are well nourished have famished hearts, which cry out for love and sympathy. He who reads the hearts, who knows what is in them, has prepared this feast which will surely satisfy every legiti- mate, righteous desire. Those who al- ready are tho Lord's people, and. who have" already feasted at the bountiful table sproad the Chmx-h, can ap- proximate to some extent the .bounty thnt will be spread before the world foretold through of the Son of God start shall come forth." The aaintly few-, whose faith- fulness God already tested, will come forth to the perfection of life The unsaiutly masses; the majority of whom have r.ever kiiown God truly, will come forth to ti resurrection, by j trial, by Judgment, by', discipline.
